    Then you have a different mount and backing plate than what came on my K9. Mine is all one molded together setup. No seperate mount.

    The tag light unbolts from the backing plate. I'm referring to the backing plate and mount are all one piece which is why it can't be mounted vertically. I'm guessing some 2009s had the two piece design and maybe the later production ones...like mine...came with the one piece designs.

    Cool didn't know we could flip them here legally. I flipped mine in 07, it says Bad Dog. No hassles so far. I might have picked something different if I knew we could have gone with 4 and flip it.

    Legally it has to be mounted the direction that it reads, but I have never heard of anyone being hassled about it here.

    Looks like PA has pass a law in Nov. making you pay an extra $20 a year to run a vertical plate. That's $20 on top of the $18 per year for registration. I will just wait and see if I get stopped.

    I hope to get away with it for awhile. It just became law in November I bet they will be looking for them this summer.

    Another idea

    I know you K9 owners can not do this because of the tight tire to fender clearances but this is my reworked rear fender.

    Looks great!! I’m doing mine before spring. Just installed that open primary too, along with a new 140 ci elbruto. Holy crap was that primary expensive! Not to mention a month wait!
